Abstract: This study lists the major laws and regulations affecting firms in the Danish food industry. A combination of desk research, interviews and survey data is used to draw inference about policies' impacts, both short term and with regard to industrial adjustment in the long term. Information on costs and benefits associated with specific regulations or legislative areas was difficult to find, and survey results indicate that many firms are unaware of the financial implications of policies. The most significant short-term impacts on firms are from the Food Act, the Planning Act, the Environmental Protection Act and the Animal Protection Act. For longer-term industrial development, the same Acts are implicated, as well as Competition and Product Liability laws.
